  • I’ve posted an updated render of “Campfires” on the new images page. The first version was done in Bryce using some low-res maps. That image looks terrible on my bright monitor. The second version was done using Lightwave, but I used procedurals instead of Earth maps so the planet looked rather alien. I think the latest render is truer to what I was aiming for in the original.

    My newest version uses hi-res maps from NASA and a few new Lightwave tricks that I’ve learned since last time. I may use this model to re-do “F=MA” sometime in the future (and try some other ideas), but for now I hope you’ll enjoy this more peaceful view.

    I’ve uploaded two extra versions in the PickleJar. One features Europe and Africa and the other depicts Asia and Australia.
